their lives. >> you remember this back with katrina, the same thing happened where a lot of residents in new orleans had seen a lot of hurricanes before. and they heard this is going to be the storm of century, and nothing ever happened to their houses, and they ignored evacuation orders. you can't -- there's only so much preparation you can do. you can never create a risk-free society. you can't prepare for everything. you know, but one of the things that has to happen in these situations for things to work right is for the government has a part to play, but individuals have a part to play, too. you've got to be working together so when people -- some of these people, obviously, their pain is genuine and totally understandable. but some of these people did, you know, were told to leave and didn't leave. and you understand why they didn't. it makes sense in human terms, but, you know, there is a responsibility that you have for yourself in addition to what the government obviously has for you. and again, if both sides are woaren't working together, that's when things fall apart. >> the perso

sense as well? >> katrina? yes. i know how those people in katrina feel. i really do. my heart went out to them. but until you go through something like this, you cannot understand the magnitude of this. my friends have come to help me. they said, michelle, we looked at your yard because we have all the stuff in the yard. they said, michelle, if we didn't see this with our own eyes, we would never believe it. >> and it's hard to know when power will be restored. mayor bloomberg said the ferry service will resume in the next day or so. he says full service by saturday, the ferry from staten island over to manhattan, new york. but who knows what's going to happen. >> i don't know. >> our heart goes out to you and your family. >> thank you so much. i'm a big fan of yours, wolf. it's a pleasure to speak with you. you know, i have to put it in perspective. we have our lives and i have my children. and, you know, it's just stuff like my kids say. but when i find my son's baby book, it rips at your heart strings. but i'm grateful that we're here. >> yeah. and i like your attitude. you got to t
hurricane katrina. they saw all of the dead bodies afterwards. >> steve: if this was a republican president do you think that the main stream media would handle it differently? the president's photop in new jersey is now in las vegas. >> eric: i love chris christy and he did victory laps with president obama and for fema, but where is fema? i am in favor of letting the states handle all of these things. but if you are going to do victory laps and say fema is the greatest institution in the last four or five years, they better be here. i haven't seen anything. not a thing. it is a disaster over there. >> gretchen: we have much to discuss this morning! in the meantime a fight for -- >> steve: fuel. >> gretchen: you know beha, we have so much to tuke about. >> steve: gas line in new jersey two miles line. >> gretchen: and the obama administration failing to call in back up as four americans attacked in libya. we'll continue to focus. did the white house leave them to die? former army chief-of-staff jack king is here to react. >> steve: media bias exist and proof is in the numbers and we have g
. staten island, new york we are hearing comparisons to katrina and its aftermath. this is why. look at the trash piling up. dirty water flooding the streets and a stench hanging in the air. people are hungry, they are cold. they are look for things to eat. clean water, dry clothes. their homes swept off the foundation by surging waves or swallows by soggy marshes. they are expressing a growing sense of anger. >> come here and walk into these streets where the water is this high and put waders on and see what it's about. not the outskirts. there is a lot of people trapped in here still. >> i don't have anywhere to go. i don't have no clothes. all the clothes i have on they gave to me at the center. >> 22 years in my home and i lost it. megyn: you can donate to the red cross if you want to help these folks. by the numbers, 19 of the 41 people who died in new york city lived on staten island. three of them were children. hundreds of homes have been destroyed and the power is out for every one in 10 staten island residents. >> reporter: the residents of staten island are calling their c

. that's allstate's stand. are you in good hands? megyn: after katrina hit the gulf coast everybody wanted water and ice. after sandy the hot commodity is gasoline. some people driving 50 miles just to fill up the tank. >> reporter: a travel catch-22. you have roads being opened, you have gas stations in most cases that are not open. and the reason they are not open is gas stations need power to pump the fuel and across the tristate area there is very little power to go around. many have likened this to the gas crunch of the 1970s. remember the long lines? people lining up to fill up. there are 200 cars long, the lines to get gasoline in some cases to fill these things up. they are trying to get gas to run their generators because they don't have power antigen rayer toes burn between 4-5 gallons per hour. that's why people are on foot. there are also people filling up their cans to fill up their cars. >> if you drive around in circles you will run out much gas owner. sitting in line in the truck it burns 5 gals. >> reporter: the gas stations are worried about their gas supply being

katrina which, you know, so many people blamed the response of fema and so forth on george w. bush. >> are well, it was kind of a benign neglect at that point in time. the president, as you may recall, flew over it initially. he had an idiot running the fema who's still popping off, mr. brown. i think fema is absolutely an agency on the ground here doing wonderful things. the end of the day the one entity of the federal government that works better than anybody else is the military, and sooner or later we're going to have to put a general in the charge as we did katrina, let them get all the stuff done. they have the equipment, the resources, the manpower, and we've got a big problem ahead. and three or four days from now this is going to continue to be a burden for a lot of people's lives, and you're going to need to respond. [inaudible conversations] >> fema, this fema under obama has been getting great marks all the way around, but they learned a lot from katrina, you know? jon: as the father of an army second lieutenant, i have to agree, the u.s. military does its work very wel
everywhere he goes to talk about it, to encourage people to help. americans, greta, as we saw from katrina, the worst natural disaster in american history, brought out the largest outpouring of philanthropy and volunteerism in american history as well. the american people are incredibly generous. they carry about their fellow citizens, so romney's right to be saying let's help, let's help the red cross, the salvation army, but also we're about to elect a president for the next four years, and there are lots of places in the country where he can be campaigning and should be campaigning. i think he's right. he's not going to go out and poke at president obama just like chris christie's not. nobody else is going to. but we got a really big election next tuesday. >> greta: it's sort of interesting. most of the damage is in new jersey and maryland and all these coastal states. they're not the swing states. it seems to me that there would maybe be a political advantage to governor romney because president obama is busy with those states. he can go out to colorado and minnesota, he can go to mich

you think back to some of these prior disasters and think of people on rooftops in katrina it is not at all an exaggeration to make a comparison here. there are 20,000 people in hoboken waiting for evacuations. a lot of questions being raised whether or not everything being done to help these folks is being done. it is a question to put out there. it is something everyone needs to consider and governments in both of these states and federal government need to consider as well. more when it comes in. bill: we know a lot about the campaigns in the closing days here. are results from 2008. steve hayes with me out of washington to ride shotgun here. good morning to you, steve. want to take you back to your home state of wisconsin. later today governor romney makes his closing argument. going to milwaukee county, southwestern part of the state. this is an area where paul ryan knows we develop. he is from janesville nearby. 10 lech coral votes in play in wisconsin can republicans take the state as they argue? >> i think it is absolutely in play. look at recent history in wisconsi
talking about the levees in new orleans today without every mentioning hurricane katrina. no one would do it. it is nonsensical. in fact there is usually so little context provided about dodd-frank that you would think that it was the product of a immaculate conception. there was no antecedent event that is amazing. that's why when opponents talk about growth rates, what was the date he started with? 2010. nothing happened before that. it is inexplicable, right? so of course, while not often mentioned the dodd-frank act was passed because of the 2008-2009 financial crisis which was the worst financial crisis since the great crash of 1929 and it delivered is the worst economy since the great depression of the '30s. how come it is so rarely mentioned? because the financial industry, its lawyers, lobbyists, allies and the broader influence industry that it has purchased has been wildly successful in changing the subject and the debate from the financial crisis, wall street's role in it, and the cost to the country. two, drum roll, the financial reform law, regulations implementing it and the
